The guitar is one of the most popular instruments in the world. And yet we still know little about how its materials, geometry, and assembly interact to shape its final sound. In this video, we meet the researchers who are trying to uncover the secrets of the favorite instrument of Django Reinhardt, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix.
